We headed up to Hogsback last weekend to collect our dog and cat from Wild Fox Hill. There wasn’t much opportunity to get to the Flower Festival – we were only there for 24 hours – and the weather was very threatening. Take a look at this picture taken from Wild Fox Hill looking east across Winding Lane towards the three Hogs and you’ll see what I mean!
There was an afternoon thunderstorm flowing down the valley and when the clouds eventually lifted there was a spectacular view across to the mountains. Atmospheric is the best word for it. It was such a change for us to see the green and grey spring colours as we had just come from the reds, yellows, gold and green of autumn in Sweden.
